Johns Rant:

Its a cold snowy day here in Victoria with some real Candanavian weather, temps below freezing, having dropped to -3 that's about 35 for all my American listeners. We got a dump of about 1 foot of snow and well I am hunkered down inside the Brewery Overlook. Well we are off and I have started to hear from folks again and it seems all is not lost lets keep this going…. This is #3 of 52 episodes for 2020.. Working to provide you with the best WordPress/ClassicPress show on the interwebs.

I am looking for more participation from you my producers this year and if it does not appear I may just retire the show. I have had very little in feedback over the past 9 months and well I have no idea if people like it aside from the downloads which have been off.

ClassicPress Options

ClassicPress is a fast growing fork of WordPress that is starting to come into its own. ClassicPress is focused on Business Websites runs fast and is looking pretty good. There are a few plugins specifically for ClassicPress and all plugins for WordPress 4.9.9 work well on it. I do believe it has a future.

One thing I am looking forward to in the ClassicPress World is the expansion of the number of ClassicPress specific plugins and their own repository. Currently there are not a lot of ClassicPress specific plugins but I do know it is going to grow and I'll have to expand this segment then. Who knows, it could take over the whole show.

This week for ClassicPress I have:
